31 Days of Halloween

In celebration of the most magical of all holidays, Stay Fresh presents: 31 Days of Halloween!

We’ve been waiting for an entire year, but finally, October is here! Fall leaves, corn mazes, pumpkin spice everything, and best of all…HALLOWEEN. The one time of year when it’s socially acceptable to be tantalized by the macabre, to get down with the supernatural, and to change our appearances.

Stay Fresh has put together 31 photoshoots to help get you in the holiday spirit. Each day in October we will post images from a different Halloween themed shoot– so stay tuned!

Traditionally, Sugar Skulls are a symbolic part of the Mexican “Día de los Muertos” celebrations, honoring death and loved ones who have passed. Sugar Skull art has recently grown in popularity and since the movie Coco, America cannot get enough.


One day while shooting Jessica overheard one of the make-up artists we use telling model John O’ Reilly she was wanting to do a jeweled Sugar Skull with “like, waaayy too many jewels!”.  When we asked who was shooting this spectacular piece, she said she was going to use her phone. We can’t have our homies using their phones, so we stepped in to be a part of this project. It was shortly after this that Jessica decided she needed way more Halloween in our lives, and started planning 30 more photoshoots! Stay tuned to Stay Fresh design for our 31 days of Halloween.
